A good friend of mine recently had his father die unexpectedly. His father had a small successful business and he needs to get access to a server and a couple of laptops so that he can follow up on some details (pay bills, contact customers, then perhaps eventually sell the business). His father didn't leave any records with the passwords.
I'm not sure who to send him to.
He contacted me because he was thinking that perhaps someone with a background in forensics might have the skills to help. I'm thinking he just might need someone with data recovery skills and some system administration skills (enough to reset passwords on the laptops and the Windows Server).
Would you all know where I could send him to get some help? He is in the Dallas area and is willing to take a day trip to meet with people accordingly. I don't necessarily need specific people or organizations, pointers would be fine (i.e. try another Reddit group or a working group etc.).
He can provide details to prove that the requests are legitimate (the business is being transferred to him but the process is not done yet).
